Alternative Activities for Spring

Spring has sprung which means we are able to spend a little more time outside these days and getting a good workout is not only reserved for the confines of your gym walls. You may love the gym, but there are other things you can do outdoors this spring to supplement your workout. For a list of alternative activities for your aerobic (cardio) and anaerobic (weight lifting) workouts,








Alternative Aerobic Activities: Alternative Anaerobic Activities:
Mountain biking Gardening
Skating (Rollerblading or Rollerskating) Fishing
Walking Golf
Dancing at a concert in the park Horseback riding
Hiking Rock climbing
Water sports Softball
Kayaking (though could be anaerobic as well) Spring Cleaning
Ultimate Frisbee Frisbee Golf
Swimming Playing tag with your kids outside
Taking the dog for a walk/run Volleyball Game
Singles tennis Doubles tennis

Fit's Tip: Keeping up with your regular cardio and weight training program is important. You know your level of fitness. For example, if your body is used to running 30 minutes on the treadmill three times a week, walking your dog for 30 minutes three times a week will not give you the same results. However, adding any number of these alternative workouts never hurts.
